Litigation Tracker: Court Rankings

Court Rankings

Firms and chambers can now chart their court appearances for the first time with the launch of The Lawyer Litigation Tracker's Court Rankings. Drawing on data from over 5,000 recorded judgments in English civil courts from 2015 and 2016, The Court Rankings report ranks 50 law firms and 20 chambers by court, sector and type of dispute.

While corporate lawyers have long been able to benchmark their activity through the M&A league tables, such research has not been available for litigation market - until now.
